headspace aims to have young people involved in every aspect of the decision-making for our centre to ensure young people's voices and opinions remain front and centre.
The Youth Advisory Groups (YAG) at headspace Tweed Heads and headspace Lismore are made up of volunteers aged 12-25yo who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people.
Our YAGs make sure that any new initiative from headspace will make a positive difference in the lives of young people.
Some of the things we do in the YAG include:
plan and run youth events, workshops, school talks. community awareness headspace stalls at festivals and more.
use our social media platforms to connect with and empower other young people and their families
assist in the design and development of our centre - shaping the delivery of headspace services, including policy, staff recruitment and training
represent headspace at events for local organisations/services/schools
